The delta crew was pleasant, but I sat at the terminal watching to see how quickly that plane would back out to depart.... it sat there for another 45 mins, while I sat there wishing I was on it. My later/original flight ended up being delayed multiple times (not due to weather) and given no explanation for why."

Cons: "That we were told on the flight from Düsseldorf to Frankfort we would make our connecting and after running from Terminal A to Z, and seeing the plane on the Tarmac, we were told we were too late. And then the service associate at the Frankfort Lufthansa was incredibly rude, unhelpful and inaccurate."

Cons: "I had a short transit time in Munich (40 minutes). Munich website promises that this is possible and that gates are close to each other and if the first flight is late, then someone will help you to your next flight. My first flight was about 10 mins late. Although assistance was provided to people connecting to some of the other flights, no-one helped me with my connection. I asked two ground staff and was just told to make my own way to the next gate, which was not close. It was in a different terminal! After literally running through two terminals, I did not make it to the gate in time and had to wait for the following flight which got me home over three hours late. Lufthansa did give me a five euro meal voucher though (which doesn't buy very much in an airport cafe)."

Pros: "They had lots of movies and TV options to choose from."
Cons: "The vegetarian option was very poor. Frankly a pizza snack in place of supper is not what I expect on a cross-Atlantic flight."

Cons: "Even if everything was on time we would have had a very hard time making our connection to Austin after customs and security in Chicago. The tickets never should have been sold that way."

Cons: "Greek managers who hate Macedonian flyers. On purpose he took our carry-on bags for check-in when I said that I had things that can be broken inside. Both bags were bellow 8 kg and we ware family of 3. Our bags were approved by Luftansa on check-in an we have them as carry-on bags from SFO. Two precious trophies was broken because of this. He did this when he saw our Macedonian passport although first the Luftansa lady said bags are ok. I will never fly with Agean Luftansa ever again."

Cons: "Noisy old plane. Not enough coffee, muffin refrigerator - cold. No entertainment but it was a short flight."

Cons: "See above. Horrible."

Cons: "Flight attendants were not able to help with connecting flights, being unprofessional and suggesting to run to the connecting gate when we would figure out which one it would be once in the terminal! Crew gave misleading information about the delays and durations of the flight."

Cons: "Haven't flown out yet."

Cons: "Lufthansa crew did not assist when i had very bad motion sickness. I asked for a ginger ale and they declined (had wanted to settle my stomach). I told them i was feeling sick and they said that beacuse I was in economy i could not get a ginger ale. I threw up twice within an hour of that. Also, my television entertainment system malfunctioned and they were not accommodating. Flight was also delayed 1.5 hours."

Pros: "cheerful, helpful flight attendants gate area in Munich - complimentary newspapers & coffee make a huge difference! also, lounge style chairs are nice"

Cons: "No entertainment system, but it was only a 50 minute flight."

Cons: "When I told an gate agent I was supposed to get a wheelchair to get to the plane, she said the record showed I can walk. True, but they expected me to get on a bus (no seat unless I make an issue of needing one!) and offered no help until I spoke up, Then, a car took me and some others directly to the plane. On arrival in Zagreb, same story, but when I asked about help they actually came with a small ambulance-like vehicle that took me to the terminal, where I was on my own. My suitcase went around several times on the carousel before I at last managed to get if off, with my fractured shoulder in a sling. There was nobody there to help, and all other passengers had already left the area. Not what I expect from Lufthansa, and not what I am used to from other airlines!"

Pros: "Do you know what it is like for a vegetarian gluten free person to order gluten free vegetarian and not get it? We confirmed by phone in advance and yet no such meal was provided. If Lufthansa does have such a meal they should say it at the time if reservations. Obviously someone didn't care enough."

If Lufthansa does have such a meal they should say it at the time if reservations. Obviously someone didn't care enough."

Pros: "Great atmosphere, crew was excellent!"

Cons: "Delays, took my hand luggage into the hold,"

Pros: "The space at my feet with the chair in front was a bit akward."

Pros: "Seating is tight. The crew was great !"

Cons: "Nothing good to say about this flight. The plane was old with no entertainment. The sits where very compact and not comfortable at all. The food was a sweet bread and water. The flight attendants were rushing and will take a while if you needed anything. I felt like I was taking a bus with graffiti all over the place."

Cons: "Customer service"

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "N/a"

Cons: "... ear plugs, masks, good food or even picking seats? I remember when it was all complementary and standard on overnight flights. Oh, and the vegetarian breakfast was unfortunately poor as well. I know you can do better, because you used to."

Pros: "Service, technology"
Cons: "Could not print by boarding card and was not allowed to board in Amsterdam"

Cons: "Entertainment was dated and poor in function. Our bags were 99 dollars each and we’re both lost and didn’t arrive. I just filed a claim and got rude service saying I should have filed the claim at the airport baggage area but there was not anybody there to do the claim then he agent upstairs said they just spoke to them and they are there and I should have done it there. This was so rude and there is no way to get back into customs area. If we paid 200 for bags I expect them to arrive on time. I’m asking for a refund of the baggage fees."

Pros: "I personally do not appreciate the food on this leg of the journey Food Ams to Dxb is GOOD!!"
Cons: "The snack & “ solid eggs” in breakfast. Fresh fruit was good."

Pros: "The cabin crew were pretty good. That's about all that was good."
Cons: "I paid almost $400 for upgraded seats. When I got to the airport-- no seats-- both ways!! i didn't even have regular seat assignments. I had to choose from the last few seats available. The ticket agent, the gate agent and the cabin crew all did nothing to make up for the fact that their system screwed up and stuck me in a cramped coach seat in the back of the plane for 11 hours-- TWICE! Beyond that, KLM must have one of the oldest fleets in the sky. Both ways LAX->AMS->LAX, I was on a 30-35 year old 747 with no wifi, no power and a ten-year-old entertainment system. Never again."

Cons: "Without any explanation the plane I was due to go to Istanbul on at 11.30 was not available. I had to wait for a small plane coming from Edinburgh then wait for it to be emptied of passengers and cleaned. This meant we were over 2 hours late into Istanbul. No explanation or apology. I then missed my next flight in Istanbul and had to purchase another ticket. I cannot believe that air passengers are treated in this way!!! I will follow this up with KLM when I go home from my holiday."

Cons: "Old airplane with not really comfy seats. No outlets for charging devices. Very old entertainment screen."

Pros: "It was a short flight so it was O.K."
Cons: "Boarding was odd. Go to airport early and counters were not open, did on line check in so was able to avoid the self check in at airport. Also self check in luggage seems confusing with no ground crew to help. It didn't affect me but lots of confused passenger."

Cons: "Quite bummed that the flight didn't have wifi / USB):"

Cons: "Lack of entertainment"

Pros: "In-flight entertainment was good."
Cons: "Food choices were not good-cold creme cheese tomato sandwich for breakfast and horrible curry chicken for dinner. Staff was young and seemed somewhat inexperienced. They were constantly rushing and couldn’t keep up with servicing customers. When we looked at a make steward to let him know that we were finished with our trays, his response was “give me a second!” Unacceptable customer service!!!"

Pros: "Old airplane very outdated entertainments system and seats are very narrow ."
Cons: "Old airplane very outdated entertainments system and seats are very narrow ."

Cons: "Could you refund me 50.00 as your price included bag price but when directed to book I had to add on bags for a further 50.00 and because of this they wouldn’t let me get on an earlier flight on my return sueevans999@hotmail.com or 07799411994 for response"

Pros: "Crew was young and energetic … FINALLY !!!"
Cons: "poor selection of food … and I was flying business."

Pros: "The crew were exceptionally nicer ery"
Cons: "Everything was pleasant"

Pros: "Flight crew"
Cons: "* LHR T3 departure - appalling terminal * Baggage checked in at BA desk but collected to one side because of baggage belt failure * Captain must have known that 2 containers had not been loaded * Arrival at MRS to eventually find that luggage had not travelled on the flight * Inept handling by ground service partner Avia Partner * Baggage re-flighted on following flight and arrived at MRS at 16:00 with Avia Partners only offering to deliver after 13:00 the following day * BA in-flight service badly let down by ground handling at LHR and MRS"

Pros: "Did reasonably well for a large flight. Crew is courteous."
Cons: "The check-in ground crew does not appear knowledgeable nor cared for the details. We are a party of 5 with US and Canadian passports and Green cards which understandably the check-in process is not "standard." They should be more alert of the situation and help us along with the check-in process more appropriately instead of directly some of us one way and others another way and when pressed, they gave very unsatisfactory answers."

Pros: "The flight left relatively on time and arrived only ten minutes late. The crew were as friendly as they were totally unaccommodating."
Cons: "In coach, every refreshment costs money, even non-alcoholic beverages, yet all four of my (valid and working before and after) cards were declined, and like all airlines nowadays, they refuse cash. The flight attendant was totally unsurprised, and mentioned they'd been "working on fixing that for a while." Every other airline I've flown, when they can't process your card, they accept it as their issue and just give you the beverage. BA were quite happy to leave me sitting thirsty without even a water for the two hour flight, with nary a apology for their technical issue. A rather basic plane, without entertainment, nor internet."

Pros: "Staff was very nice."
Cons: "I feel it is very cheap of the airline to charge for all food and beverages during the flight. A small snack and complimentary water/soda/juice would have gone a long way."

Pros: "arrived safely and on time"
Cons: "Nothing was included. No snacks, not even pretzels or peanuts. No beverages unless you wanted to pay for it. No entertainment, such as music or TV shows (flight too short for movies.)"

Pros: "Disability assist was good."
Cons: "Unable to use your cash on board. Having to use a card to buy something, like a drink, for £1.80"

Cons: "Very rough ride, made me sick"

Cons: "I tried to reserve my seat and do a 24 hr advance check-in - no luck. I was in the airport in Munich at 9am, could not get a boarding pass for the London-Boston leg and asked to have an isle seat reserved - no such luck!! I was squeezed in on a window seat in a row of 3. Try to get up when the 2 people in your row are deep asleep! I was disappointed that they did not honor my request, which was made online and supposedly held in the booking system. Heathrow is another story - terrible airport, no decent food. Oh, and BA even charges for water on the European flights. How low can you go?"

Pros: "Better seats and space"
Cons: "New M&S menu, makes service too slow and the items are mediocre."

Pros: "British Air was excellent, but there was poor connectivity between them and Kayak(webjet)which left me seeking information even at the last minute"

Cons: "Missed my connecting flight and experience was horrible"

Pros: "The flight arrived early"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Not operating in any way like there is a pandemic going on. Both overbooked flights. Put everybody too close together and then spouted a bunch of social distancing. All words no action. No sanitizer or wipes offered. No amenities."

Pros: "Space between the seats"

Pros: "Arrived safely."
Cons: "Bumped from business to coach and given a lousy $300 voucher."

Pros: "Crew good seat was better than than the last. Food really good"
Cons: "Shorter fly time"

Pros: "Plane was nice and comfortable, enjoyed blanket and pillow. Cabin soft drink service was good."
Cons: "Ok movie selection, more less R rated movies to choose from would be nice. Served snack literally 20 minutes before we landed, kinda silly."

Cons: "Board planes from the back to front to avoid aisle congestion while boarding."

Pros: "Great crew! Comfortable seats!"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "flight took off exactly on time & arrived on time"

Cons: "Took forever to get the bags"

Pros: "NO NO"
Cons: "yes"

Pros: "movies"
Cons: "the bumpiest, harrowing flight ever"

Pros: "The flight was early."
Cons: "More leg room needed."

Pros: "Boarding, entertainment"
Cons: "Arm rests were immobile, meaning could not take advantage of empty seat next to me."

Pros: "The check-in was pleasant. I was treated politely, the staff was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "People at the gate while boarding were quite rude."

Cons: "The flight was booked. A lot of families were separated. It included family with the small children. Passengers were running around asking to change the seats. The entertainment system was very slow. The sound made cracking noises. The flight was over two hours late. In addition, we had to wait for our luggage over 40'. The luggage was wet."

Pros: "The food and the snack was pretty good"
Cons: "I paid $20 for the 24 hours of Wi-Fi and it never worked On either flight. The guy sitting in the seat behind me kept putting his knees into the back of the seat to prevent me from reclining so that his girlfriend could sleep with her head in his lap, so I could not recline in sleep on the long flight from Munich to Philadelphia. I don't have any of these issues when I fly on United. If you want me to fly on American more than I suggest you fixed them."

Cons: "fly was delayed and we missed the conection"

Pros: "Great and friendly airline crew"

Pros: "Flight attendants were perfect"
Cons: "Beginning about 5.5 hours prior to departure I started getting text and email alerts indicating a sixty minute delay. Then thirty minute delay. Then sixty. Then none. I had to decide whether ir not to believe the alerts, get some things done and change my airport departure time .... or to disregard the alerts. Flight ended up leaving on time. Why the alerts??"

Pros: "None of the experience was pleasant"
Cons: "First flight was delayed causing us to miss the 2nd flight and we ended sleeping on a chair at the airport waiting for a morning flight. AMERICAN AIRLINES didn't even have the decency to put us in a hotel for the night due to their delay. Then they added a 2nd lay over which was delayed for hours also. Traveling was to visit my mother who had cancer and I was sick so this made the trip even more distasteful."

Cons: "2 hour late departure. could not get there story strait on why the delay, finally they went with weather delay. steward reminded me of a bunch of people unhappy with there jobs. need to work on customer service"

Pros: "We landed safely"
Cons: "I was astounded at the miserable "cattle car" experience of this flight. When the person in front of me reclined his seat, the back was shoved to within about a foot of my face. Talk about "In Your Face!" It was nearly impossible to exit from my window seat to the aisle, since there is almost no vertical space open from floor to ceiling in which to move. Flying used to be fun--this is awful!"

Cons: "Outdated 757. No individual entertainment. Power restricted to premium seats and was intermittent when it worked."

Pros: "Flight attendants"
Cons: "The flight got delayed from salt lake and we had to spend a day in Charlotte before another flight came"

Pros: "NOTHING!"
Cons: "American Airlines DISCRIMINATES especially against the elderly! The airlines took my family of 6 off the flight that I booked 6 months in advance, and I had no flight out of Munich, Germany. I do not know why. I called and had them put us back on the flight. I paid extra for seats so that we could all sit together. The seats were given to others and my family could not sit together. The American Airlines employees were not helpful at all! The agent, Rowna, lied to us that we would be sitting together. They will not reimburse me for paying extra for seats that I did not get. The porter that pushed my mother in the wheelchair was more helpful than any employee."

Pros: "It was on time, crew members were great."
Cons: "My video screen watching a movie froze the last couple of hours. Let the attendants know, nothing ever happened and reminded them a few times over the 2 hr period."

Cons: "Great trip"

Pros: "Really friendly crew"

Pros: "great flight! THank You"

Pros: "The fact that we got home without our luggage missing"
Cons: "Flights were operated by American Airlines. The touch screens on the flights between Munich to Philadelphia. Apparently this was a known issue so I have no idea why the company didn't care to fix it. The food served was awful and tasteless. Not to mention that webjet once again made errors with out booking which the AA ground staff were nice enough to fix."

Cons: "For some reason they changed my seat."

Pros: "All of the flight was OK - nothing special -"
Cons: "One of the flight attendants did not like her job at all - like a robot - no smiles, frustrated and bored"

Pros: "I had a relaxing trip everything went smooth and the crew was very nice and helpful"
Cons: "the only thing I did not like is the food choice because it seems like every airlines have the same to choices no big deal"

Cons: "The first plane was broken and the pilot kept coming to brief the passwngers that it was broken but it may be fixed and so on, it would have been better if he had just let the counter clerk say the plane is delayed due to maintenance. As a customer, i dont need all the rambling explanation every ten minutes about the issue. I was told that we could board another flight leaving in 30 minutes, so i went to that gate, crew was not there and we boarded the plane. We had to de- board and wait for the crew. After the crew showed up, the rest of the flight was pretty standard."

Pros: "Plane was comfy and food was good"
Cons: "Boarding in Munich was a nightmare. There was no place to line up and there was only one person checking tickets which resulted in 100s of people trying to push through at same time. After that we had to cram on buses and wait on tarmack for 30mins till plane was ready and then everyone rushed on the plane."

Cons: "This was actually an American Airline flight with other carrier names. I hate how AA tries to get passengers to pay more for seating. Even less than 24 hours before the flight they were trying to trick me into selecting a less desirable seat or pay an additional $93 per seat. It was only because we got to the airport early did better seats mysteriously become available. Even after selecting seats they still tried to get us to pay for "better" seating."

Cons: "Seats are getting more and more uncomfortable"

Cons: "They didn't even get me to Sarasota, they flew me into Tampa."

Cons: "Beverage service 10 minutes before landing. The cabin crew waited quite some time before starting service which meant they finished late"

Pros: "The smoothness of the ride"
Cons: "Boarding was rushed then we sat on plane for an hour before take off. Then movies i wanted to watch wouldnt work and crew was annoyed and not helpful. Food was ok... mashed potatoes would have been better as rice with chicken."

Pros: "When we printed out our boarding passes the two seats that we bought were not listed. The agent at the boarding gate was awesome and got us two seats together. The flight was smooth and the flight crew was very good."
Cons: "The time allotted between flights was too short."

Pros: "Announcements and directions on landing in Philadelphia were very complete and helpful. Crew came around multiple times offering drinks."
Cons: "Baggage unloading took 40 minutes to begin. Caused jam up behind other arriving flights at customs and everyone in big rush to catch connecting flights. Entertainment good but touchscreen was not responsive and frustrating to operate. Long walk to new terminal for connecting flight even though flight was listed as the same flight number for both legs."

Pros: "Plane was not full and seats seemed spacious. Everything was on time."
Cons: "the entertainment systems was very slow to respond to the touch commands on the screen."

Pros: "Pleasant crew, pretty good food and films."
Cons: "Significant departure delay, contradictory information from initial airport check in to gate staff, beverage selection is okay but prices for more than the basics are astronomical."

Pros: "On time departures. Friendly crew."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The flight service was consistently adequate and the attendants made sure to provide many opportunities to stay well hydrated"
Cons: "There was a screaming child that made the trip almost intolerable. No fault of American, however, perhaps the attendants could have made some additional suggestions to the parent to help him quiet his child."

Pros: "Well organised and even arrived early! The flight crew were kind and efficient."
Cons: "No free food"

Cons: "The plane crew was great. The ground crew in Paris was terrible. They were so rude and unhelpful."

Pros: "Entertainment options were outstanding , 4 movies and 10 hour flight is quicker than quick."
Cons: "Nothing on the flight. Could not pre-board on line, so instead of a zone 2 loading sequence we got zone 4. as a person who flies to Europe 4-5 times a year I do not enjoy getting on a plane in the Zone 4-5 sequencing."

Cons: "The fact that American Airlines woman at the gate when we showed up at 12:10 pm for 12:15 pm flight asked us if we were the four people from the airberlin flight and told us that they knew our flight landed late but that we were too late to catch this flight home because they closed the gate. She barley gave us direction on what to do about getting a new flight or fudging our bags."
